Teaching with a Disability & Teaching about Disability - COABE conference presentation Tuesday, 02 April

I would like to invite anyone interested in disability or who has a disability to join the discussion tomorrow for a presentation. I am hoping to start connecting disabled adult education teachers and see how our fellow teachers navigate disability. This is the blurb. If you aren't able to make it, that's no problem. Hopefully within the week of the conference I will put up the presentation. Thanks!
